AnonD-110047, 21 Jan 2015Not agree, we have an example of Apple iPhone, one for everyone. Did you not read what he said or were your Apple glasses blocking words out?? One of the key issues mentioned was about non-removable battery and last time i checked the iphone didn't have this?? Therefore your argument just flopped

A flagship needs to be perfect with no weak points, or it's a scam. Just like non-removable battery is also a scam. They really desperately want us to replace our phones every yar. But if we do, then why spending tons of money on flagships? That's why crappy phones like Xiaomi are so popular. At least they are cheaper than the other crappy phones

If not Samsung some one will deliver these specks and Samsung will loose ...
I hope sami is listening to me instead to you.... difference will be about 500 million in sales...
Lets wait and see.
Wow, the water resistance and finger sensor were the biggest improvements of the S5. They better make it look good instead.
More typical modern day logic. "Our sales are dropping? No problem, we'll make crappier phones to fix that problem".
To be honest i personally prefen non-water resistant (Less heating, more sound from he speaker), but i know few people do.
Thank goodness! I really don’t like the flap cover over the charger hole to protect it against water and dust... As mine broke off on my Samsung galaxy s5!!
Let’s just hope that Samsung isn’t going with the glass back idea, and make it metal
123456789, 21 Jan 2015I don't understand why you guys care so much about water resistance, if you get your phone wet... moreOf course it's the users fault if it gets wet, but mostly people don't plan on dropping it in water, so having resistance is smart and not dumb.
As far as i concern dual sim important as to go out of india many times.
not many cared about water resistant
what a stupid idea....surely sales drop
I am samsung galaxy user ever since the first one came out but I did not buy the S5 for many many reasons. If this is true then I am going to SONY Z4 for sure. One month till will now for sure...

This is where Motorola water splash resistant it is important. Even in lower phone $150 cost Moto E does resist to water. This missing features will cost them much.
Finally. It was a bad decision to begin with. The slim bezels of S4 gave their place to the chunky ones of S5 (because of water proofing)
S5 was truly a step backwards (worse ppi, worse screen to body ratio, unimpressive soc, etc)
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2015If this is true Samsung is going to have an even lower sales. Samsung - are loosing the poi... moreno sure about you or others but to me the dual sim option kinda makes the phone feel rather cheap,as if it's a cheap chinese copy.IMO.
If this means ultra slim bezels and snappier looks then yes to Samsung
I don't understand why you guys care so much about water resistance, if you get your phone wet it's your own fault. Not buying a phone due to the lack of this feature is just nonsensical.
At this point in time, the focus on the development teams should be battery efficiency with the software. Water resistance, dust resistance should be much lower on their priority list.
If this is true Samsung is going to have an even lower sales.
Samsung - are loosing the point??
1) IP certified phones as it is their main device and expect it to be robust
2) Dual SIM
3) Great battery
4) Screen shatter resistant so gorilla glass 4
Ignore this at your peril.
Sony - looks like you have a good chance to make your phone division profitable.
